For having had the joy of attending a Christian Science Sunday School, and for the many demonstrations accomplished by application of the truths learned in my early childhood I shall always be grateful. Some of the healings have been accomplished very quickly through my own understanding and others with the help of family members or Christian Science practitioners. The following healings show the overcoming of lack—lack of home, lack of health, and lack of income.

My husband and I had been praying for an improved standard of employment, and this led him to take a position in another city. The new position necessitated our selling one house and finding another. We had prayed faithfully concerning this entire move. A realtor, to whom we had first given exclusive selling rights, did nothing. He released us from the contract after six weeks in which no one came to see the house to purchase it.

The following weekend a neighbor I didn't know came with flags and explained how I might hold an open house showing. I put the flags on the lawn and all day these words of Hymn No. 82 in the Christian Science Hymnal kept coming to me: "God is working His purpose out." At the end of the afternoon, as I started to gather the flags together to return them, a car stopped and a man and his family asked if they might see the house. He explained he had seen this house during the building stages. They walked through saying nothing, until he asked if I had a typewriter and he proceeded to dictate the terms. The price was exactly what we had originally set.
